We have long waited for published commentary from this renown OT scholar. Ezekiel seems the perfect fit, as Hummel bemoans lack of Lutheran interest in priestly, liturgical prophet such as this.
Reading this first installment of Ezekiel returns one to classic Dr. Hummel: Christolocial, historical, typological, liturgical, priestly. His definitive focus on "sacramental" unity between two testaments and hereby expounded in Ezekiel highlights Law and Gospel means of grace orientation in OT land, temple and sacrifices.
His unique treatment of judgment oracles as indicting Law in all severity truly make way for sweetness of the Gospel. Chapter 16 being the longest of these sections with the classic Ezekiel impact of an abandoned girl representing Jerusalem who is dearly loved and wedded, then returns such grace with infidelity. First judgment, but ultimately "chesed of covenant loyalty," i.e. "when I make atonement for you for all you have done."
Can't wait to dig into these riches for Christ in this rich and eccentric prophet's ministry for Bible Study helps and well as homoletic resources. Well seasoned with careful bibliography, notations, pointed comments, and Christ everywhere and Him crucified.
May many turn to this to make Dr. Hummel's passion come alive, many seeking and finding Christ on pages of this magnificent prophet pointed forward to the True Prophet.
